Since I've gotten my Spec V shipped to Germany I have been able to drive it a little faster than I normally would in the States. While on the Autobahn I was curious what my average fuel mileage would be at my normal 110 MPH cruising speed (a speed that the cruise control won’t allow.) I was pretty happy with the 22 MPG that the computer reports that I get. This number, and the available power at that speed, drops noticeably if the A/C is on.

Yeah but I'm wondering how accurate it really is. I think its like an average of MPG over the life of the car. Same with the MPH avg thingy.

It is an average since the last time you reset it. When on the MPG screen, hold the plunger in and it will reset to zero. Same with trip odo and MPH. I don't think it's too accurate, though.

sure you can, but you increase the effect of starting / stopping / accellerating / etc has on the fuel economy.

Kansas, heading West toward Colorado Springs. Start at Oakley, Kansas and go on a little road that parrallels the Freeway just to the south of it. It head straight West. I think it's called 40 or something. It's on the road atlas. Nothing out there. Nice flat road with nothing.
